Ruth Culham admits to being a writing thief--and she wants you and your students to become writing thieves, too! A major part of good writing instruction is finding the right mentor texts to share with students. Within this book, you'll discover more than 90 excellent mentor texts, along with straight-forward activities that incorporate the traits of writing across informational, narrative, and argument modes. Chapters also include brief essays from beloved writing thieves such as Lester Laminack, David L. Harrison, Lisa Yee, Nicola Davies, Ralph Fletcher, Toni Buzzeo, Lola Schaefer, and Kate Messner, detailing the reading that has influenced their own writing. Ruth's renowned easy-going style and friendly tone make this a book you'll turn to again and again as you guide your students to reach their full potential as deep, thoughtful readers and great writers.

Die vorliegende Taschenbuchausgabe hat den gleichen Aufbau: Unterteilt in 3 Kapitel werden Götter, Halbgötter und Naturmythen vorgestellt, wobei in den farbig nacherzählten Abenteuern Gorgonen, Helden und Ungeheuer den schon immer die Religionen beherrschenden Kampf zwischen den Mächten der Finsternis und des Lichtes markieren. Die eigenwilligen Illustrationen von J. Gleich sind durch die gefälligeren, hellfarbenen Bilder von L. Glazer-Naudé ersetzt, der die Emotionen der Akteure mit zartem Stift in fast fotografischer Deutlichkeit eindrucksvoll festhält. Ein abschließendes Kapitel gilt den Legenden von Midas und Pygmalion. Neben G. Schwabs unverzichtbarem Grundbestandstitel der "Sagen des klassischen Altertums" (zuletzt BA 4/07) oder der unterhaltsam-frechen Darstellung griechischer Sagen durch D. Inkiow (BA 4/07) als sprachlich auffallende, schwungvolle Nacherzählung der griechischen Mythen breit empfohlen. . - Warum verschlang Kronos seine Kinder? Was war in dem goldenen Kästchen, das Pandora, die Gabenreiche, von Hermes erhielt? Wie kam es, dass Athene, die "Hochstirnige", dem Haupt des Zeus entstieg? In farbig erzählten Episoden wird die griechische Mythologie lebendig. Ab 10.
